           Summary: iframe loads with wrong (old) url
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525.x (Safari 3.2)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Frames
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: toomim at cs.washington.edu

I am building a facebook app that loads an iframe. I've noticed a few times,
though, that if I change the url for the iframe (the src attribute), safari
continues to load the iframe with the OLD src attribute when I reload the outer

This is really strange. If I view source on the outer page, it shows the
correct (new) src attribute. But the iframe is loading the old one. If I
control-click on the iframe and tell it to open in a new window, it pulls up a
browser for the incorrect (old) src attribute url. Emptying the safari cache
does not make a difference.

My iframes usually just change in the get request parameters (the base url
filename is stable). Here's an example. Check out the discrepancy is the
fb_sig_session_key parameter!

iframe code that shows up in view source:

name="main_iframe" smartsize="false" resizable="true" frameborder="0"
scrolling="no" class="canvas_iframe_util"></iframe>

iframe url that safari actually loads:


This latter url is one that used to be correct! Somehow safari has saved it and
continues to stubbornly reuse it even though the page is telling it to use a
totally different url.
